and implicit in is what the u.n. ambassador susan rice said on television in that five days later actually about it being a spontaneous demonstration responding to the video, a copycat demonstration of what had happened earlier in cairo was not correct, and then they in turn from the u.n. mission keep saying there was an intelligence memo and everyone is standing in a circle pointing the finger elsewhere. >> it has the same sort of ethos of what happened after 9/11. when you go back and look -- the original 9/11, a lot of data points that might have been able to point to a danger here, point to some issues related to security. we see this now because this was a country that had been involved in historic revolution, had been a hot spot and we're being told that ambassador stevens had wanted greater security. some discussion about when the duty date for some of the members of that security team had expired that he had requested more, that was not done. some of the issues about resources, about judgments made at the time. now that something this awful has occurred, it puts a different light o
contradictory public statements by the president, the secretary of state and the u.n. ambassador on libyan terrorist attacks. state department officials telling a house investigative committee that they never told anyone in the obama administration or anyone else for that matter, the terrorist attacks in benghazi were linked in any way whatsoever to an anti-muslim internet video. a video that the president himself over a three-week period of the cause of those attacks. someone in the administration is clearly not telling the truth. the house oversight committee chairman, darrell issa, is not pleased. the president cannot be pleased. the public statements are contravened by both evidence and testimony now before the oversight committee. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton's remarks at andrews air force base at the return of the ceremonies for the four americans murdered in benghazi. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that, because it is sense

point was the response to the initial question on libya. >> they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say this is because of a protest and youtube video. >> that is exactly what we were told by intelligence community. >> by who? >> the intelligence community told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened. they changed their assessment. >> joe scarborough this morning, as well as in "the daily standard," they said this that biden throws the intelligence community under the bus. what's your thought here? was the vice president not aware of the congressional testimony that happened on tuesday? the full tick tock that had come out? it didn't sync with his answer, necessarily. >> i think there will be more to be said on this today. i'm not going to prejudge what might come out of the state department. let me just say this. what i find disgusting, and american people should find disgusting, on the night this was happening, before we knew the ambassador had been killed, mitt romney decided to politicalize a tragedy in the middle east. >> that is what the vice president said.
support to the whole country, u.s. employees and the whole country, and eric n nordstrom asking for more security and his responses were unanswered and they said they wanted to keep the security presence to a minimum. >> elise, let me stop you there because i'm going to play what andy wood said to cbs news. >> sure. >> -- for enhanced or continued security that we had, that we had known, that we had come to live with and work with there for the environment we had, we felt we needed more, not less. >> $64,000 question, of course, is so why would requests like that go unheard and unanswered? >> that's the big question. when asked who said that, he said the state department superiors. and there is one woman testifying today, charlene lamb, deputy assistant secretary, where it seemed that the buck stopped with her and she was the one that said, you know, need to keep the security to a minimum. soledad, what officials are saying is, listen, there was security improvements made to the consulate, to the office, over the last several months, leading up to the attack because there were other atta
, the ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, you have this state department comments coming out. now we come out to find that those were absolutely not true. they are somewhere between totally false and absolutely not true. it's certainly -- >> i think that that's an exaggeration, congressman. >> no. >> let's play them then. >> what is true about what she said? >> let's first play the -- what ambassador rice had to say. i think she's the one who went on september 16th on "meet the press" went further than everybody. bedon't have that clip. she said she believed it looked like it was connected to protests. she went the furthest. but jay carney, i think that was on september 18th, actually said something not going quite as far. i think we have her sound bite. let's play the ambassador first. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in chiropractor r cairo. almost a copycat demonstrations against our facility in cairo pr
them, and i think there were a couple of very important moments. that came essentially from the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, and in the testimony by ambassador patrick kennedy, which we expect to hear, he says that any official who was in -- was testifying at that particular time that she did, which was on the 16th five days later, the 16th of september, five days after the attack, would have said the very same thing. it was based on the information that was known at that particular moment. you are already setting up, you know, some would say that the administration lied. in fact, chairman isa said that the administration misled people. now, patrick kennedy from the stat department, he is the under secretary for management, and he is saying no, that is what we knew at that particular point. there are some other interesting moments, fred, as we go through this. we can discuss it if you want, but i think that's one of the key things. >> it is, indeed. so we also just learned information that the white house has sent john brennan to libya. he has been meeting with senior libyan officia
few weeks, and they sent the u.n. ambassador got to say that this is because of a protest and youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this is a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech, he said six times he talked about the youtube video. look, if we are hit by terrorists, will call up what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment regarding him. should we have it very detachment regarding our benghazi, please renew there was an al qaeda with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. >> all right. rachel, who won that exchange quick >> one thing who won the debate and i think that was martha raddatz. a very aggressive moderator. didn't interrupt, but kept them on point impressed both of them hard. he pressed trying very hard on his budget numbers and tax plan and doesn't not work? does this add up? triggered by repeatedly from her. the interesting thing is the question of optics we were talking about before. there's also the question of how ryan's performance will play. it is a presidential? did that ex
on in egypt, which was a protest. so that information took a couple days to clear. >> no, the u.n. secretary, ambassador rice, also talked about -- >> susan rice has a vulnerability here because she was doing that a couple of days into this and, you know, they've cited a cia analysis report which, you know, actually says there was a protest. a lot of people got the information wrong. part of the problem is at the root of your question, which is this needs to be an investigation into the facts and what it's come to is a debate on politics in a presidential election. >> john miller, thanks, john. >>> new poll numbers show just how much the presidential race has turned around in the past week. the latest gallup tracking poll shows 49% of likely voters favor mitt romney and 47% support president obama and two other polls from the key state of ohio shows the candidates are effectively tied. one of them shows romney ahead by one point and the other the president leads by 4. both men campaigned in ohio tuesday. jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in akron. good morning, jan. >> reporter: w

, the national health care. i believe he wants to take away our gun rights and hand them over to the u.n. for them to control, and to have them be in control of our constitutional laws. his moral fiber as a parent and a husband and a father of two children -- his moral fiber, he compromises to the gay community for votes. no husband or father would ever been his moral code to say it is ok for gays to be married to one another. if you tear down the moral fiber of this country, you tear down god's protection as well. why do you think we have droughts and hurricanes and tornadoes growing in a larger scale? host: we have a couple more calls. president obama, just a few minutes ago, in ohio. mitt romney, also in ohio. meanwhile, ohio congressman and speaker of the house john boehner has been in new hampshire, talking about efforts on the democratic side to win back the house.

gave the u.n. is simply here in washington and the woodrow wilson center a very clear fractional assessment of what drugs can do and how they're helping his government take care of some of the security problems. one of the things i don't think he has a knowledge is the degree to which that kind of intervention and the way that intervention seems in society generally is undermining the legitimacy of his transition of government. >> quite difficult. multiple wars going on. >> i had a very good interpreter who had an extended network of people. the went out to the south. remove from travel check to travel a share to travel shake. getting to the all question of signature strikes, i was riding in pickup trucks with a bunch of travel fighters. >> i am clearly a foreigner. take the resumption that this is the target. i might have been won, but the simple reality is if you take the time to do your homework and build a local relationship you can get a much richer data set. to sort of relying on third-party reports. they maintain a low profile, move around smoothly. literally moving from t
: mccain. host: we have dennis from ohio. birthplace of neil armstrong. wire u.n. decided this morning? caller: -- why are you undecided this monring? -- morning? did this help to bring some clarity to you? caller: no. the vice president kept interrupting his coworker. he laughed a lot. i don't know if he thought the issues were funny. as far as the president and his running mate, obama said he has created a lot of jobs so the unemployment goes down, but he does not say whether that was manufacturing jobs, flipping hamburgers someplace, and and his cohort says if he gets elected, he will create 12,000 new jobs right away. well, are they in manufacturing? are they going to make government bigger than it is? neither party is clear on anything as far as i am concerned. as far as foreign policy, every time a foreign country sneezes, the united states has to run over to wipe their nose. we have spent millions of dollars over there in wars we are not going to win. i cannot see staying over there and getting our soldiers killed for nothing. that is what i think of the their party. host: that
